Design and Fabrication

 

Design and Fabrication Services at Modeller’s Workshop

Design and fabrication services at Modeller’s Workshop include designing and fabricating parts for a variety of scale models, including large R/C sailing yachts, models designed specifically to meet racing specifications, and for an assortment of other interests.
  

A Few of our large-scale R/C sailboats

Big R/C boats look great on the water. Two things make an R/C boat look like the real thing when it’s on the water; the amount of water being displaced, and the amount of sail area the boat can carry for a given wind strength. Bigger models look much better on the water and where else can one get a hundred-inch model? We are here to help create big models.
